Notes:

Welcome! This is first official Oracle Online class. Below you’ll find the first (and most important) class. It may be a review of some. But regardless, it carries a heavy message, may not entirely sink in deep until later in your career.

1. Brief history of Jiu Jitsu
2. The single most important lesson: BJJ is about controlling your opponent (and yourself)
3. The Trinity of BJJ: Knowledge, Speed and Strength
4. Fight 101: Avoidance and distance management
5. Drill: Shrimp and Guard system. Reticular engagement.

– a look at the Shrimp. What is it? Why it’s important?
– Negative before positive. Guard pass (less technique more feel)
– defending the guard pass (technique)

POST Class notes:
– Guys, great class today. Considering it was our first one, you did well!
We covered quite a bit of ground in one session. So don’t be scared that you may not have retained everything. Don’t worry, we will be repeating many things from various different perspectives over time.
– For now, focus on what I taught you today
– If you have time, practice with a partner or chair. Repetition makes perfection.
– Come back here next week to see our next week’s curriculum.

Class prep notes:
If you do not have a partner, you can use a large pillow or sofa cushion (i dressed in a gi – great). It will help surrogate partner for this exercise. The heavier the better.

If not available, no problem we can air drill.

Post class notes:
Great class today. We covered a lot of ground, theory and technique today.
Just keep in mind what our objectives were. To prevent someone from getting past our guard. And conversely passing one’s guard to achieve positional dominance.

One key theory was the concept of:
a) the knee line and (don’t allow anyone past your knee line)
b) border patrol (don’t allow anyone into your air space)
b) ‘pummel’ with your opposite leg to maintain distance and control of your opponent.

Next week:
We’ll review and continue with the guard series.

6. using your new position, grab opponents belt from his back
7. insert your opposite foot into back of previous ankle which was gripped
8. use inserted foot to fully rotate yourself exactly to 12-6 o’clock position with opponent (you should be facing his back now)
